DANVILLE, Va. (AP) - Workers at a Nestle plant in Danville have voted to be represented by the United Steelworkers.

Nestle spokesman Roz O’Hearn tells the Danville Register & Bee (https://bit.ly/1WGFMsv ) that the National Labor Relations Board informed the company about the workers’ vote.

The election was held Wednesday. The results must be certified before they become official, which is expected to occur about seven days after the election.

The plant employs 560 workers.

United Steelworkers organizer Ben Brandon tells the newspaper that the employees contacted the union. He says issues shared by the employees included wages, benefits and treatment by supervisors.
